What to Know About 2010 Volvo S40 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volvo S40 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your S40. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get S40 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Volvo S40 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volvo themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your S40's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2010 Volvo S40 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volvo S40 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2010 Volvo S40 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your S40's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2010 Volvo S40 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volvo S40 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volvo S40 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Volvo S40 engine. See Volvo's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 S40 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Volvo S40.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volvo S40 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Volvo S40 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volvo S40's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Volvo S40 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volvo S40 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Volvo S40 radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Volvo S40 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2010 Volvo S40 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Volvo S40. Get answers to common Volvo S40 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volvo S40? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Volvo S40? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volvo S40 engines.
  •  Why are my Volvo dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Volvo S40, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
